This is the second in a three-volume literary biography of Evelyn Waugh. The first volume covered Waugh's childhood and education and their influence on his writing. This book focuses on the intersection between literature and biography, not on one or the other. Relatives, wives, children, friends, and associates inspired much of Waugh's writing, and this book traces the origins of his fiction in his experience. More than most of the other books about Waugh, Evelyn Waugh: A Literary Biography draws on his diaries, letters, journalism, travel books, and autobiography.
